further clarifications concerning aromantic...
mimiinadream: We are not “broken”. We are not heartless. We are not “late bloomers”. Our hormones are not flawed. Most of us have human bonding needs too. Squishes are not a diluted version of crushes. We did not “become” aromantic because of bitterness. Our lives are not any easier with the lack of romantic feelings. In fact, it can sometimes be harder. I am heartless and bitter. I am...
A Note About April Fool's Day
We have already done what we intend to do. The recent poll and the change to our slogan are intended to be our jokes for this year. The stories that appear tomorrow will be based on actual events. If we post phony stories there is a chance that people will actually believe them.
New Poll Up on The Site
This poll covers an issue of vital social importance. The readers know I’m completely serious about this because I’m describing it this way rather than telling you exactly what it is.

Asexual News -- Now Powered by GlaDoS
In honor of this change, we have also changed our slogan. It is now: “There’s no sense crying over every mistake. We just keep on trying until we run out of cake.” This change will last until 11:59 tomorrow night.
She didn't believe me
Some girl: I can make cake in the colors of the rainbow flag and put it into Mason jars.
Me: If you could make the cake in puprle, gray, white, and black I can guarantee I can find you a market for it.
Some girl: Really? Who would buy that
Other person (who knows about Asexuals): Oh, yeah! You would
Some girl: No Way!

The small text here was just intended to be snark, nothing more. On a personal level, I’m not sure what to make of the overall story. The tone used in the text is as neutral as possible. I have mixed feelings about it. I think it’s cool that she got as far as she did with the beauty pageant. I think beauty pageants encourage unrealistic expectations. I also think beauty pageants,...

Do you ever have a feeling that you’re not exactly sure whether something is a good or bad thing? I can’t help but wonder if her supporters are tranny chasers.

A Minor Change To the Site
The login time for the site has been changed from 15 minutes to three hours. This should only affect users who have an account on the site. People who just read the articles should not notice any change.

And the reasons for this should be obvious.
New Poll: How Do You Identify?
Although I have tried to be inclusive as possible, there are limits to the polling software, and most people have several different identities. (A religious identity, a sexual identity, subcultures they belong to, etc.) Feel free to reblog and add y our own identity here.

I think Moffat should be more worried about his own comments, andless about CBS’s elementary. In hindsight, this was a terrible title.
We also upgraded our software to Joomla 2.5.3. This, amazingly, caused absolutely no problems with our modules and no one should notice any difference in the way the site operates.
Minor Template Change
I am still trying to find a working template for the site, but there has been a small change to the current layout. Although this means the pictures look out of place now, I like the new layout slightly more than I liked the previous one. The only real difference is the user menus are on the right.

Should Medicaid Offer HRT?
While I’m in favor of this, it could be bad from a fiscal standpoint. Few states offer HRT, and none of them that I’m aware of cover SRS. There’s also the counterpoint which is its necessary medical care for transgender patients.

Yesterday was the Vernal Equinox. Neopagans who fall Wicca or one of its variants celebrated it as a Holiday. Some Asatruar may have as well. (I can’t remember which particular festival, but I hope that the Aesir and the Vanir will forgive me for this. I know it’s not Yuletide or Distide. I’m not even sure I didn’t just make distide up.)

allons-ytobakerstreet: I want to know how many of us are here. Because right now I’m feeling very alone. Um, well, there are plenty of Asexuals here, but not many who will reblog posts like this.
